1987 Renault Alliance GTA Convertible

“Looks like a Chrysler” my friend said when I showed him this picture of a 1987 Renault Alliance.  I said to him, “yea, it does kind of look like a K platform car”. We’re not totally wrong in thinking this. The Alliance was manufactured and marketed in North America by American Motors Corporation (AMC) – the same company that was contributing to Jeeps development in the 1970’s and 1980’s.  AMC has a long and interesting history that started out in the 1950’s – they produced their own vehicles but always had their hands in partnerships and developments during their existence.  During a decade of their existence, from the late 1970’s to the late 1980’s, Renault and AMC were intertwined. In a strange string of events, shareholder ownership of AMC was changing hands from Renault to Chrysler at the same time that this 1987 Renault Alliance was hitting the market. Coincidence!>?!>!?!?

Anyway, enjoy some pics of this sweet 1987 Renault Alliance Convertible and don’t forget to check out some other Renault and AMC car’s we’ve spotted:

Mundane Monday – 89′ Sentra Hatchback

This 1989 Nissan Sentra Hatchback is not sought after or highly desirable, nor is it a performance machine worth time on a race track.  Nope, this is about as mundane as it gets.  The 1989 Nissan Sentra Hatchback screams “bleeehhhh” at the top of it’s lungs and is proud of it.  Just look at it – it’s so practical!

I’m not going to even include a link or interesting information about the car because, well… you get it.
